A large group of us went to the Purple Pear for dinner Saturday night to celebrate a few birthdays. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I am looking forward to go there again. Cheryl

I attended with a group of friends and both the service and food were top notch. This was my second time at the Purple Pear and both experiences were great. I started with the Escargot, something that you rarely see on menus these days. It was buttery, garlic deliciousness. I couldn't help but sop up the remaining butter with the... More

We visited with a large group for a birthday party, the atmosphere was quiet and romantic and exactly what we had hoped for. The waitstaff were fantastic and friendly, and we were pleasantly surprised by the menu prices. The house wines are quite decent, although listed as a Baco/merlot on the menu, when it is in fact a gammay/merlot. The... More
